Posted By: Adam, 02-20-2014, 01:31 PM

B&H has just modified their Pentax K-3 kit to include a free grip, 50mm lens, and a 32gb memory card.

Here it is:

I received my order from B&H yesterday. Even though many reviews said the improvement of K-3 over K-5II/IIs is not that much,
I can still feel the difference the moment I had it in my hands. One thing I particularly like: K-3's AF points are smaller, and its AF
system is more responsive than my K-5IIs. I feel that K-3's AF motor is more powerful too....

Anyway, you will love the K-3

When I buy gray market, it's because the manufacturer made a version that is different from that marketed in the USA and there's a reason I want the international one. I also purchase a 3rd party warranty plan, such as Square Trade.

Do you mind sharing what the difference is?

For current Pentax products, there isn't one (except for the language of the included paperwork perhaps).

Other manufacturers do things differently. For example, Nikon USA lenses have "US" stamped before the serial number.

I'm referring to products where there IS a difference. For example, the US version of my current phone model has a dualcore processor. The international one is a quad core. Guess which one I bought?

Wow, I didn't know it could happen. What phone model is that?

The HTC one x. The US version is a 1.5ghz Snapdragon. The international is a 1.5ghz ARM with Nvidia Tegra 3. In order to make it LTE compatible, they had to use the Snapdragon. I do not live in an areawhere there is LTE coverage. It was a no-brainer for me.

I purchased my K3 package from B&H thru the Pentax Forums web site. How do I know if the site gets credit for my purchase?
